All first-place and second-place teams to the Gold playoffs. All third-place and fourth-place teams to the Silver playoffs. Playoff positions on the tournament brackets will be based on pool finish to avoid teams from the same pool playing each other in the first round. Prizes will be awarded to 1stplace winners in Gold. Coaches and Players who are not complete with their registration will not be permitted to participate in OVR Sanctioned events. TIE-BREAKING Since all teams advance to playoffs, ties will not be decided by playing a set. 1. If 2 teams from the same pool are tied, their head-to-head match determines the order of finish. 2. If 3 teams from the same pool are tied after match and set % and point differential have been calculated, a coin flip will determine their order of finish. WARM-UPS Only USAV members may be in the playing area to assist with warm-ups. Prior to each team's first match of the day, juniors’ boys' mandatory warm-ups are to consist of 15 minutes (7 minutes shared, no hitting across net), 4 minutes serving team, 4 minutes receiving team. After each team's first match, the mandatory warm-up time between all matches is will be 10 minutes, consisting of 2 minutes of shared ball handling on-court, 4 minutes full-court for the serving team, and 4 minutes full-court for the receiving team. During each team's full-court warm-up segment, the opposing team must be in their bench area and not interfere with the team using the court. However, for purposes of risk management, the off team could offer to help with retrieving balls when the on team is hitting provided the "on-team" coach agrees. Teams that wish to practice serving during the warm-ups may ask to be informed when they have one minute (or more/less) remaining in their 4-minute period. Shared serving between the two teams is not permitted. This applies to all matches. The time between sets is 3 minutes.
